The Scene is Clean

The Boston Phoenix

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something overdue. That twist on the old wedding-day axiom works as well as any when it comes to capturing the character of this fall's local crop of pop and rock releases from old friends, new faces, and promising acquaintances. Indeed, the long-awaited, much-delayed release of Loveless's Gift to the World, now scheduled for November 11 on the Somerville-based Q Division label, feels like the big day after a prolonged engagement.

Since forming the alterna-rock group a few years back, singer-guitarists Dave Wanamaker (ex-Expanding Man) and Jen Trynin have issued one well-received EP, and they were last year at this time, reported to be putting the finishing touches on a full-length follow-up. But Q Division's new label manager, Ed Valauskas (who also has good news to report concerning The Gentlemen, for whom he plays bass), promises that the Loveless album will be a reality this fall. What's more, he says, it's going to be good. "There's not a clunker on the record. I think it's one of the best-sounding things [Q owner/producer] Mike Denneen has done. And Dave's* just a really great songwriter."

The disc, he reports, has a Britpop feel but also boasts big, stick-in-your-head choruses that recall vintage Tom Petty and anthemic arrangements that reflect Wanamaker's soft spot for, uh, Journey and Def Leppard.

*- the original article misquoted Ed as saying that "Jen's just a really great songwriter". She IS. But Dave writes the songs in Loveless.
